My friend and I stayed here Labor Day weekend. She woke up at 12 am telling me bugs were biting her. She had welts on her fingers, wrist and ears from where they bit her. The motel refunded us for the room, but we had to convince them to pay for us to stay somewhere else, since it was so...

i read a few really scary reviews and was immediately afraid of what I'd find. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this cheap little no frills hotel was exactly what I needed. It has not changed in 20 years. It's the same furniture but now chipped and dented. It gives character to the place. It is super clean due...

The Front Desk personnel were friendly. The room was dirty. Thank goodness I brought sheets and pillows. Looked into going to another area hotel but every place was booked over the Lanor Day weekend The shower curtain was coated with mildew! There were stains on the walls The Bathroom mirror was corroded and the fixtures all had rust on them...

Stayed here with a friend over Labor Day weekend. I was awoken by bugs biting me in bed at 1am! They did refund our money, and after a long discussion, agreed to send and pay for us to stay at a really low grade motel called High Seas (which didn't even have a smoke alarm). We were disgusted and I...

I booked on Labor Day NIGHT. After a long hot summer and a holiday weekend I was surprised how gracious and kind the reception. My room was SPOTLESS! The facility is old let's be clear. This is not a 4 star hotel. The location is fantastic, though be aware u are near a firehouse . I had no problem with...

No, not the cleanest or prettiest but who cares!! You're at the beach. Perfect location and front desk staff was the best!! Can't beat the price for not having to drive anywhere. Walk to any restaurant your taste buds desire. Plus no parking meters, yay!

First and foremost, this is DEFINITELY a motel. Here are some of the pros: LOCATION: Perfect. Within walking distance of boardwalk, restaurants and shops, but not too close to all of the noise. PRICE: The price for Labor Day of 200/night, was among the lower price point in Rehoboth we could find for a trip booked with a week notice...

I would definitely recommend this motel. The rooms were clean and perfectly functional. The staff was FANTASTIC - so friendly and helpful. LOVED the pool deck with its comfortable loungers and fun views of the main drag. From their we could hear the live music from the bar across the street (not loud, just right!) - my kids loved hanging...

Hubby and I stayed here off reward points due to its prime location on the Rehoboth strip. I wasn't expecting much, because it's a cheap beach motel, but our bathroom was moldy in places. The pool water was also an unsettling shade of green. Cheap is fine, but I expect clean! Also, a note for ladies, the hotel provides shampoo...

Don't ever book with this place. Stay as far away as you can. I was going to stay, the last weekend of September and gave them my card number, thinking they needed card just to hold room. Two days later they take out deposit. I called and they said Oh everything is ok. Two days later, they did it again....
